Federal Restricted Buildings and Grounds Improvement Act of 2011, 388-3.

This little peice of legislation may be really ugly for those of us who actually care about our rights.

Check it out folks. the Senate passed it unanamously, and the House make short work of it.

How will Obama handle it? My only hope is that SCOTUS will strike it down quickly, if it is signed.

  1. I hope the supreme court strikes this down! But it looks to me like our government is starting to make its move and make us no better then their slaves

    1. They way it looks to me, “they” declare the restricted zones and buildings (the buildings are less sensitive). Let's use an example of a speech that includes a government official who is covered by a Secret Service detail, oh I know it is election time so lets use a candidate, now that many of them are protected.So while candidate X is going to be there a magic zone is created where there cannot be any protests, or anything that is perceived as a disruption (since it is so very loosely defined) then one can be prosecuted on a federal level. Oh and if a fight were to break out even among the guests (or attempted protesters) that also would result in federal charges. Your permit to carry is also suspended while in the said zone.So in theory, the congressman that called out the Obama was a liar in the State of the Union Address would have been chargeable (unless there is an exemption for congressmen, which would not be a shock.)Of course the Senate passed it unanimously, they are all eligible for SS (It is an appropriate abbreviation isn't it?) coverage aren't they?

      1. Not to mention that the President, with a memorandum, can designate anyone as being covered under this new law. IOW he can use the federal court system to harass anyone in the United States who is going after anyone he decides needs protection. Can anyone say Eric Holder!!!

    2. =E2=80=9Crestricted in conjunction with an event designated as a sp= ecial event of national significance.” would that include the Superbowl, Olympics, WTO meetings, etc IF a dignitary were to be present?

    3. The main differences are listed below with the current version first followed by the replacement. It is a little concerning because this is supposed to be for the Presidential detail and now has become murky. They have removed the jurisdictional restrictions as well as the restriction that were found in other US CODE and State Statutes.

      THE FOLLOWING SECTIONS HAVE BEEN CHANGED IN PHRASING AND INTENT
      (a) Whoever–
      (a) It shall be unlawful for any person or group of persons—

      THIS HAS BEEN ADDED AT THE BEGINNING HENCE THE DIFFERENCE IN NUMBERING

      (2) knowingly, and with intent to impede or disrupt the orderly conduct of Government business or official functions, engages in disorderly or disruptive conduct in, or within such proximity to, any restricted building or grounds when, or so that, such conduct, in fact, impedes or disrupts the orderly conduct of Government business or official functions;

      (4) willfully and knowingly to obstruct or impede ingress or egress to or from any building, grounds, or area described in paragraph (1) or (2); or

      (5) willfully and knowingly to engage in any act of physical violence against any person or property in any building, grounds, or area described in paragraph (1) or (2).

      THE FOLLOWING SECTION HEADING HAS BEEN CHANGED WITH NO CHANGES TO THE UNDERLYING PENALTIES
      (b) Violation of this section, and attempts or conspiracies to commit such violations, shall be punishable by—
      (b) The punishment for a violation of subsection (a) is–

      (1) a fine under this title or imprisonment for not more than 10 years, or both, if—
      (A) the person, during and in relation to the offense, uses or carries a deadly or dangerous weapon or firearm; or
      ( B) the offense results in significant bodily injury as defined by section 2118 (e)(3); and
      (2) a fine under this title or imprisonment for not more than one year, or both, in any other case.

      THE FOLLOWING TWO SECTIONS HAVE BEEN REMOVED FROM THE CURRENT LAW
      (c) Violation of this section, and attempts or conspiracies to commit such violations, shall be prosecuted by the United States attorney in the Federal district court having jurisdiction of the place where the offense occurred.
      (d) None of the laws of the United States or of the several States and the District of Columbia shall be superseded by this section.

      THE FOLLOWING SECTION (e) HAS BEEN RE-DESIGNATED AND INCORPORATED AT THE END OF NEW SECTION (c)
      (e) As used in this section, the term “other person protected by the Secret Service” means any person whom the United States Secret Service is authorized to protect under section 3056 of this title when such person has not declined such protection.
      (c) In this section–
      (1) the term ‘restricted buildings or grounds’ means any posted, cordoned off, or otherwise restricted area–

      (C) of a building or grounds so restricted in conjunction with an event designated as a special event of national significance; and
      (2) the term ‘other person protected by the Secret Service’ means any person whom the United States Secret Service is authorized to protect under section 3056 of this title or by Presidential memorandum, when such person has not declined such protection.’.

  2. I think they know the true American is pissed and not going to take much more of their crap. As it is with the NDAA, they can imprison us indefinitely without legal representation or trial just by uttering the word terrorist. They have the DHS media bill which will imprison and gag any media person who says anything against them.

    Pretty much, our representatives have just passed legislation that gave them the power to do anything because we will be imprisoned if we disagree with them, or engage them, or write about them.

  3. It looks like it is pretty much a done deal and it is on it's way for signature by the President. SCOTUS is the only body that could rule it unConstitutional, but only if a case is put forth and they agree to review it.

  4. On another note. It appears the Oregon Legislature came down on the side of the 2nd Amendment by keeping CHL information private and defeating a bill that would further restrict CHL carry rights.
